/ Chamonix partners from now to 18th July
Experienced climber in Chamonix for the next two weeks, up to the 18th, with quite a few days presently free to climb. No particular agenda of climbs, just interested in lovely days out in the mountains at whatever grade suits with an enthusiastic partner. Looking for someone to climb on the Brevent the next couple of days before the thunderstorms start.
I am around the weekend July 13/14 if you are still looking for a partner.
Bonjour, Kate, thanks for replying. I am indeed still looking for a partner for exactly the days you want. I have partners lined up for Thu/Fri but no commitments for Saturday and Sunday. I have been having a great time walking, scrambling and climbing around here with a variety of nice companions. I am staying in the Fleur de Neiges hotel just out of the main town and using a lift multi pass to get higher each day. I am very relaxed about what I do and it depends totally on weather and partner. Sat looks a bit iffy weather wise (perhaps a cragging day with entertainment at the World Cup in the evening?) but Sun looks good for the mountains. What do you fancy doing? (I have a 60m single rope, quick draws, a small rack, crampons and axe with me.) If you want to contact me direct i am on firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to meeting you, Alf.
Our Friday Night Vido this week follows the climbing of Mickey Schaefer, put together from ten years of archive footage from Mickey's climbs. These days, Mickey is known as 'the guy who can't watch' from Free Solo, but his climbing career extends further...
